Last week’s gospel, which showed Jesus fasting in the desert and subject to temptation, revealed to us his full humanity. Today his identity as God’s Son is declared. With three close friends he has climbed a mountain, a traditional meeting place with God, and becomes caught up in glory. Peter interrupts Jesus’ conversation with Moses and Elijah, who represent the Law and Prophets; he wants to cling to this ecstatic experience. Then the presence of God (symbolized by a bright cloud) overwhelms the disciples. They learn to reverence God’s holiness. Only Jesus’ touch quiets their awe-filled fear. He will come down from the mountain of the transfiguration to take the road toward the cross, strengthened by this religious experience for the Calvary that lies ahead. Abram, too, had to abandon everything he held dear to answer God’s call. Hardship is part of Christian living, but the letter Timothy assures us that God’s power will carry us through. We only need to trust in God’s love for us.


Does Jesus have the place of honour in your family’s heart and home? The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus program can show you how to get started. What about a relationship with the Mother of Jesus?

For a visit of the Pilgrim Virgin Statue and for more information about the Enthronement, contact the Legion of Mary at 416-286-3932


Based on the current weather forecast, we are expecting significant snow on Friday evening and overnight, with possible accumulations of 15-20cm.  
This could make for a tricky drive for us all on Saturday morning. 
As a result, we are rescheduling our drop off to Sunday 5 March 2023between 12:15 – 12:45 pm in the west parking lot, after Sunday morning 11:00am Mass. 
We look forward to seeing you then!

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
